#NedinDarwin Challenge

We're breaking an Australian record!


To celebrate Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly series in Darwin, MAGNT calls on you to participate in the #NedinDarwin Challenge. Help us reach more than 100 Ned Kelly lookalikes to make a new record for the Australian Book of Records! 

Everyone is welcome to join in the fun and emulate Australia’s legendary bushranger. Sport a Ned Kelly inspired helmet or show off your real (or fake!) beard and moustache.

Join us to achieve this exciting #NedinDarwin Australian record.
